Here are five ways to have fun this weekend.

1. The big movies opening this week are “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” a PG-13 sequel in the Marvel franchise, again starring Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson; and “Dom Hemingway,” an R crime drama starring Jude Law.

2. The Final Four takes place this weekend. Both games are Saturday night, with Florida taking on Connecticut, and Wisconsin taking on Kentucky. Go to the official March Madness site for more information, http://www.ncaa.com/march-madness.

3. Saturday is International Pillow Fight Day. It’s a day when people get together and have pillow fights. You can see if there are any taking place in your area, or simply organize one at home or in your neighborhood.

4. Sunday is New Beer’s Eve, a holiday that together with National Beer Day (Monday), celebrates the end of Prohibition. If you’re a beer lover, it’s a great excuse to go out to your local pub and celebrate.

5. In addition to the NCAA tournament, there are plenty of other sports options this weekend. The NBA and NHL seasons are headed into the home stretch, NASCAR takes place Sunday and Major League Soccer has games all weekend. Check your TV listings for broadcast times.
